This beautiful Casa and BnB proved to be an absolute gem of a find in the narrow cobblestone streets of Merida. As soon as you enter, majestic beautifully furnished rooms open up and flow through to the tropical courtyard and gardens, where your delicious breakfasts will be served. It is centrally located to everything and an easy walk to the historic square. Although the hosts, Vi and Stuart stem from Australia, they are passionate about this city, Yucatan and the friendly Mayan people and will provide you with helpful information to explore and discover everything it has to offer.
The rooms at the Casa are wonderfully clean and spacious and located upstairs at the rear of the casa. It is extremely safe. I stayed in the height of the summer temperatures and it was wonderful to not need the aircon but leave the balcony doors open with beautiful breezes caressing me into peaceful slumber.
As a host of a BnB in Brisbane Australia, I am a harsh critic, but Casa de dos Tortugas ticks all the boxes and attention has been paid to every detail.
